Badger and Skinny Pete - Breaking Bad

Well what do you want, nothing but science fiction and fantasy characters all over this list? Too bad, because it’s not going to happen. We have to lighten things up a little with the ongoing adventures of Badger and Skinny Pete, the right and left hand men of Jesse Pinkman. They’re comic relief in the show Breaking Bad, but both show flashes of being ridiculously interesting characters, such as when Skinny Pete randomly starts playing a keyboard at a master level. And let’s not even get started on their numerous awesome conversations about science fiction television shows. Not much would really happen on the Adventures of Badger and Skinny Pete, especially if they didn’t have flashbacks to them helping out Jesse or Walter White, but every episode would still be entertaining as hell.


Falcon - Captain America

This movie has only just recently come out, but if you’ve seen it you know we’re absolutely right in suggesting that Sam Wilson, also known as Falcon, deserves to have his own solo film in the wake of Winter Soldier’s success. We have to think he’ll eventually get it, too, considering how acclaimed Anthony Mackie’s performance has become, and how iconic the character is in the grand scale of the Marvel Universe. After all, this was one of the first major black superheroes, and Mackie plays him to perfection. If he does not pop up in numerous future Marvel projects, starting with Avengers: Age of Ultron, then someone is seriously dropping the ball over at Marvel and Disney. Give us more Falcon, and do it as soon as possible.


Beorn - The Hobbit

It’s kind of criminal how little screen time Beorn got in the second Hobbit film. He basically existed in that film for expositional purposes, and was given virtually no background, and the audience was left thinking he was just some big hairy dude who lived alone and probably had sex with animals. But man, there is so much more to Beorn, as fans of Tolkien already know. He’s one of the few beings in Middle Earth who has the power to single handedly turn the tide of a battle, and perhaps the only one that orcs and goblins alike absolutely fear, knowing that this hulking man who can turn into a giant, vicious bear hates their kind and will kill any such evil being he runs across. Hell, in the books it appears that even Gandalf is frightened of Beorn. If you can scare Gandalf, then man do we want to see a movie about you just unleashing hell on the horrors of Middle Earth for two solid hours.
